Small country house. Circa 1800 probably for Samuel Churchill, extended c.1840
and early C20. Marlstone ashlar and coursed squared marlstone with ashlar
dressings; Welsh-slate roofs with ashlar stacks. Cruciform plan with service
range plus extensions. Neo-classical style. 2 storeys and 3 storeys. Principal
front, facing garden, has a projecting 3-storey central section, with French
window at ground floor, a stone-architraved tripartite sash at first floor,
linked by its keyblock to a moulded cornice, and a triangular-pedimented attic
storey with a Diocletian window and panelled corner pilasters. Cornice and
first-floor storeyband return and are carried across a blind 2-storey bay to
left, which also has a large panel at first floor; corresponding bay to right is
masked by an early-C20 ashlar extension in similar style. Left end of range
forms a shallow bow with three 12-pane sashes at first floor, and matching
sashes below flanking a French window; an added bay of c.1840, beyond the bow,
has a further sash above a full-height tripartite sash. Shallow-pitched roofs
are concealed by plain parapets rising from the cornices. Right end of main
range, facing road, has a symmetrical 3-window arrangement of sashes, plus a
central doorway with ornamental overlight and a stone triangular-pedimented
Roman-Doric porch; added bay to left has a sash at first floor. To right, a
2-storey blind arch links to the lower 2-storey rubble service range which has
two 3-light leaded casements at each floor plus a C20 doorway; it returns in an
L-shape. Rear of main range includes a 3-storey central section with a tall
arched stair window. Interior: some contemporary joinery, fireplaces and
friezes; oak-stair of c.1840. An unusual and distinguished composition, somewhat
obscured by the C20 addition, to rear of which is a small landscaped park.
